Daddy Come Home - Eli Gerstner
YBC 5 - Chanukah

(Submitted by a gracious reader)

Daddy's been gone
Gone for so long
For him I pray

He joined the Corps
Fighting a war
Somewhere far away

He promised me he'd return
When the Chanukah candles burn
So here I wait

The blessings I recite
By the candle-light
But it's getting late

(Chorus:)
Daddy come home
Stay with me
Let me hold your hand
Let me sit upon your knee
I see fear
In Mommy's eyes
Every time she cries
And tries to comfort me

It's scary here at home
My mind begins to roam
Have I lost you?

I hear the phone
Mommy's mournful moan
It can't be true!

(Chorus:)

Where has he gone?
How will I carry on?
Tell me what can I say?
I need to pray

Please hear my plea
Send my Daddy home to...

 ...Who's that I hear
Calling my name
I run into his arms
Yes, my Daddy came
Home to me
He's on his knees
Now he's holding me
For all eternity

Now, as night falls
We stand tall
Eight candles burning bright
And they're lighting up the night
Home at last
Eyes aglow
I hug my Daddy tight
And I'm not letting go!

I was reading your article and wondered if you had considered creating an ebook on this subject. Your writing would sell it fast. You have a lot of writing talent. hampton bay lighting
